    Default valve spring compressor

    As the title suggests, I am in need of a valve spring compressor for my fuego.

    The cheap and nasty one that I have does not clear the edge of the head so is useless.

    What type of compressor should I get that will fit neatly and not be a pr!#k to use ??

    Default Valve Spring Compressor

    Hi Jo

    I made my own, can take a pic if you like.

    But not sure if it would work on a Fuego head.

    ACHTUNG ALLES LOOKENPEEPERS

    Das computermachine is nicht fur gefingerpoken und mittengrabben. Ist easy schnappen der springenwerk, blowenfusen und poppencorken mit spitssparken. Ist nicht fur gewerken bei das dummkopfen. Das rubbernecken sightseeren keepen hands in das pockets-relaxen und watch das blinkenlights.

    The question is will there be some sort of 'renault thing' that will impede placement of the tool.

    Default The future ?

    Hi,
    That unit might work Ok on the Feugo as stated.
    However if you move on to do some newer 4 valve heads in the future it probably will not fit them. The springs are recessed in the tappet 'holes'. Just a thought as you spent the dollars.

    Not likely, but noted thanks.

    Amazing price for a compressor that looks like it can cope with most heads both old and modern.
    The selection of 5 adapters with cut-aways to access the colletts. When I think of the cobbled up things I made in the past.
